An amateur in the] apiary asks us "how the hiving of bees should he done, win' kind of a box, and how to pr.m- d to remove them to their new home?" On this sub . ject we quote Mr! Sutcliffe: t r K* ©JEN ■I ...M I 7 - I Conducted fcy M- J. WRAQO. HOW TO HIVE BEES. We prepare first our empty hives In putting a strip of comb foundation iy 2 inches wide on each frame, press it tight, on the frame, then take a small brush and dip it in hot wax, stroke it along the fop of me foundation. This will make it fast when the wax is cold. Next we need a cloth—oilcloth is best. it so as to cover .the top s. Now we say the swarm or. We must watch it and .ere it. will settle. Watch the outer edges of the swarm. When it is settled, take the liive we have pre pared, set it down near the cluster so that the bees, when you shake them, will fall in front of the hive. Take a dipper and dip a few of the bees and of is see put them in front of the entrance. , Dip another, and when the queen is in you may dip more. Watch for the | queen; if you see her go in the hive, you may take a larger tin for dipping. Dip them all off. If the queen is in the liive the bees will all go in. If there are a lev, on the hive, brush them off -and get them in as soon as possible. Take the hive to the old j stand, and the hive the swarm came from can he taken to a new, shady place. ' Occasionally we find a farmer who is afraid to give his cows the fresh buttermilk. What queer ideas some people get in their heads! We find it , a grand food for hogs when mixed with meal into a slop, or given as a drink when corn is fed for a solid food. i great success which the agri cultural colleges have had at the In , ternational live stock shows has done much to give to cattle breeders and feeders increased respect for the men who teach in such institutions. The demonstration of the fact that the men who teacli can also do has been very effective. This year the Short horn, the Angus and the Grade cham pionships, as well as the grand and re COLLEGES are getting there. The serve championships went to agricul tural colleges. The Animal Husbandry department of the Iowa Agricultural college won forty-nine prizes, including two grand championships, of the aggregate amount of $1,600 at the International live stock show. The college tn' s special pride in the fact that p ■ tically every animal in its exhibit e bred on the college farm. The experi ment station of Minnesota took cash prizes amounting to $1,21C, and one The dog and cat have their proper place on the farm, but, Ilk* the cow. they must be of the right sort and quality.

He is still working along in the old way. He toils away on his farm just as lie did before the theory of the trust was ever dreamed of, taking his corn and his potatoes and his word away in the old lumber wagon and spending days in the city dealing them out at such prices as he may be able to command, or perhaps closing them out at figures quite be low the col of production, in rase the market should be crowded, as is often the case.
